Heavy Implantation Bleeding? adult content

I have read that IB is supposed to be very light i.e. pinkish or brownsh. But this morning I woke to discover that I had bright red blood. A few hours later its still light(unlike a period) when I use the restroom. Now,the dpo timing is right. I'm not due for AF until a week from today. What do y'all think? Have you had an experience like this? Sorry if this is tmi, ill be marking it as such....

  • I've never heard of implantation bleeding being so heavy. Have you had a BFP already?

  • The implantation bleeding I had with my first was at the time my period should have been and it was like a light period (lasted about two days with very light bleeding). Didn't get it with the second.

  • I have never heard of anyone I know having implantation bleeding. Before I came to Cafemom, I never knew such thing existed.... So, I think it's your period.

  • at first my doc said my bleeding was implantation (it was light and brown, sometimes pink if i was using the bathroom)
    then few days later, i had red and heavy
    a different doc did an external scan, i had 100% placenta previa

    call up your doc, and get an external scan

    not due for another week- i would bet not implantation
    but to be sure not implantation or something else
    i would call your doc and go in for pregnancy test, if positive then ask for an external scan

    if you are bleeding red and heavy AND are pregnant- NO INTERNAL EXAM until an external scan can rule out placenta issues

    good luck

  • Wel its too early to take a HPT so no, no BFP yet..... Its the end of the day and nothing there when I use the restroom sooooo? Dont know that it has anything to do with it but I got car sick today(which I usually dont) but didn't toss my cookies, luckily... Ill keep y'all posted. I'm going to make an apt here after next week. As I am going to take an HPT first.
